The metal body 20 comprises a metal plate (e.g., an aluminum plate) which is bent and has four vertical peripheral walls 20 a and a bottom wall 20 b surrounded by the four vertical peripheral walls 20 a. As can be seen in FIGS. 5 through 7, the backlight 34 and the scattering sheets (or diffusion sheets) 45 and 46 are arranged in an accommodation space defined by the four vertical peripheral walls 20 a and the bottom wall 20 b. The frame-like cover 36 covers the peripheral regions of the backlight 34 and the scattering sheets (or diffusion sheets) 45 and 46. Also, the frame-like cover 36 can hold the liquid crystal display element 38.

The metal body 20 has engagement recesses 20 c formed in the bottom portions of the vertical peripheral walls 20 a, so that the hooks 30 of the first frame member 12 can engage in the engagement recesses 20 c. Each vertical peripheral wall 20 a has two engagement recesses 20 c. The metal body 20 has positioning pieces 20 d having grooves and projections on the inner sides of the vertical peripheral walls 20 a. Grooves or projections provided at the ends of the backlight 34 and the scattering sheets (or diffusion sheets) 45 and 46, shown in FIG. 5, are engaged with the projections and grooves of the positioning pieces 20, respectively, to position these members in a predetermined position in the metal body 20.

The metal body 20 has screw engagement pieces 20 e. As can be seen in FIG. 4, the second frame member 14 is coupled to the first frame member 12 by the screws 18. The screws 18 pass through holes 14 a of the second frame member 14 and holes 20 f of the screw-engagement pieces 20 e of the metal body 20 and are screwed in threaded holes of the bosses 12 b (FIG. 5) provided on the first frame member 12.

FIG. 8 shows a perspective view of the metal members 39 and 40 which are not in the form of a frame and which are arranged between the first frame member 12 shown in FIG. 5 and the driving ICs 38 a provided on the outer peripheral regions of the liquid crystal display element 38. The metal members 39 and 40 have an L-shape in cross-section, and have horizontal portions 39 h and 40 h and vertical portions 39 v and 40 v, respectively. An engagement piece 39 e is formed on the metal member 39. The engagement piece 39 e extends downward from the horizontal portion 39 h and is bent in the horizontal direction. Likewise, an engagement piece 40 e is formed on the metal member 40. The engagement piece 40 e extends stepwise in the downward direction from the horizontal portion 40 h and are bent in the horizontal direction. The engagement pieces 39 e and 40 e are arranged to overlap one of the screw-engagement pieces 20 e of the metal body 20 along a vertical line.

The screw 18 passes through the hole 20 f of the screw engagement piece 20 e of the metal body 20, through a hole 20 f of the screw-engagement piece 20 e of the metal body 20 and the holes 39 f and 40 f of the engagement pieces 39 e and 40 e of the metal members 39 and 40, and is screwed in the threaded hole in the bosse 12 b of the first frame member 12. Therefore, the metal members 39 and 40 are electrically connected to the metal body 20 by the screw 18 which is used to secure the assembly 32 to the second frame member 14. That is, the metal members 39 and 40 are electrically connected to the metal body 20 by a screw for assembling the liquid crystal display device 10. Namely, the metal members 39 and 40 can be connected to the ground.

Further, an extension 40 p of the horizontal portion 40 h of one metal member 40 extends toward the other metal member 39, so that a gap provided between the metal members 39 and 40 becomes as small as possible. The extension 40 p covers a portion of the printed circuit located in the vicinity of the corner between the two adjacent sides of the liquid crystal display element 38.

The assembly 32 including the metal body 20, the backlight 34, the cover 36, the liquid crystal display element 38, the metal members 39 and 40 which are not in the form a frame, and the first frame member 12 can be easily assembled together by engaging the hooks 30 of the first frame member 12 with the engagement recesses 20 c in the metal body 20. The number of the screw fastening steps can be reduced. In FIG. 6, the lower end of the hook 30 is located between the bottom surface of the metal body 20 and the first frame member 12, and at a distance “a” from the bottom surface of the metal body 20 toward the display surface side. Therefore, the thickness of the unit (such as monitor) can be reduced.

FIGS. 9A and 9B show the frame-like metal member 60 shown in FIG. 11 and a sheet material of which the metal member 60 is made. FIG. 9A shows the frame-like metal member 60 and FIG. 9B shows the sheet material X of which the frame-like metal member 60 is made. The frame-like metal member 60 is formed by punching a non-hatched portion from the metal sheet X and bending the same along the dotted line. The remaining portion (hatched portion) of the sheet material X is removed.

FIGS. 10A and 10B show the metal members 39 and 40 which are not in the form of a frame, according to the present invention, and a sheet material Y of which the metal members 39 and 40 are made. FIG. 10A shows the metal members 49 and 40 which are not in the form of a frame and FIG. 10B shows the sheet material (e.g., aluminum sheet) Y of which the metal members 39 and 40 are made. The metal members 39 and 40 which are not in the form of a frame are formed by punching non-hatched portions from the metal sheet Y and bending the same along the dotted line. The upper non-hatched portion of the sheet material Y forms the short metal member 40 and the lower non-hatched portion larger than the upper non-hatched portion forms the long metal member 39. The remaining portion (hatched portion) of the sheet material Y is removed. The metal members 39 and 40 which are not in the form of a frame make it possible to reduce the amount of the metal necessary to make the metal members and reduce the amount of material to be removed.

As will be understood from the above discussion, according to the present invention, a liquid crystal display device which can be easily assembled and in which the cost of material can be reduced can be obtained.
